IT/iere hove been per»islent rumor» lover fotcn the putt fete tceefcs that we would be forced to quit making ICE, and that we could not deliver the ice even if we did manufacture it. Thi* rumor no doubt teas founded by some well meaning persons who became excited because they do not undertland the situation completely,' FOR ONE THING the production of mechanical refrigerators ceases next April 30. No more will be built for the duration, according to latest Government orders. No more can be sold by wholesalers or manufacturers, except on governmental authority. Retailers are permitted to sell those in their stocks the middle of February, under certain restrictions. Instead of something more than' three MILLION new mechanical refrigerators a year ago to go into new homes and to replace ice "boxes" and worn-out mechanical refrigerators, the public must, very soon, depend on ICE for all new homes and for replacement of broken-down machines. The availability of mechanical repair parts is uncertain. Mechanical breakdcvm caused by loss of gas, its replacement is almost certain to be impossible. FOOD CONSERVATION is one of the big war needs and ICE is still the main method of saving food which contains those precious VITAMINS. Along with this fact tire rationing for ice delivery is at the top of the list for priorities. DO NOT BE MISLED by statements made by unscrupulous people who make verbal statements in order to make a sale. ICE is about the only "necessity" which will suffer NO general shortage ...
